The Iraqi Armed Forces continue their rapid advance near the strategic Huwija District, liberating several sites from the ISIS terror organization, Al-Masdar news reported on Friday, October 6.

Led by Hashd Al-Sha’abi (Popular Mobilization Units), the Iraqi Armed Forces began the day by advancing from two different axis, resulting in the liberation of several towns, including Al-Muhammadiyah.

The biggest advance by the Iraqi Armed Forces came from the southern axis of Huwija, where the aforementioned town of Al-Muhammadiyah is located.

The operation to liberate Huwija began late last month, when the Iraqi Prime Minister, Haidar Al-‘Abadi, announced the start of this imperative offensive to clear central Iraq.
